Strat's Food Expansion! This add-on nerfs all existing vanilla foods and requires more progression for you to obtain a fulfilling meal!

Cook Book

In my best way possible, I've provided information on all the equipment in the Cook Book, and an intro to the add-on, so you don't have to read much of this page.

As you explore, you will encounter some things that will help you make some of your favourite foods.

Crop Bush

When breaking these, you will have a chance of obtaining most of the new crops: tomato, lettuce, tea leaves and coffee beans, along with other vanilla crops, like potatoes, melon seeds, etc.

There are four new types: Forest Bushes, Taiga Bushes, Tropical Bushes and Torrid Bushes.

Crop Bushes

You can also collect them by using shears!

Each crop bush type has their own unique drops.

Bushes Drops

Copper Crop Pot

This is a stylish block to place your crops on, without the need of water to grow!

Maple Trees

Maple syrup can be gathered from this tree, by using a glass jar when the syrup on the logs has matured.

Marple Tree

A whole wood set is also introduced by this tree:

  • Maple Stairs do not currently have an accurate collision box, and instead work like slabs for now.
  • A Maple Leaf can be dropped by Maple Leaves, allowing you to make Leaf Piles (as shown on the far right).

Crop Trees

Occasionally, you will also come across different types of crops on trees, which cannot be found in the crop bush, e.g. oranges and coconuts.

Oranges Tree

Salt Ore

Salt Ore is a white ore, found in caves and mountains. When mining this, you can get from 1-3 pieces of salt, which is a key ingredient for making a lot of foods.

Salt Ore



This is used to make butter, by placing milk in it and churning it.

Pestle and Mortar

This is needed for grinding things, like wheat to get flour, sugar canes to get sugar and cocoa beans to get cocoa powder for chocolate!

This is used to toast bread, obviously. Just slot some bread slices in the toaster and it will become toast.

This can be buttered and even jam or marmalade can be added to it!

This is needed to cut food on the Chopping Board.

Netherite Kitchen Knives are now also available, if you are committed enough for one.

A big change to food is that it now has varied duration levels, depending on how many hunger points the food gives.

Use Duration of the Foods

Because there is a lot of food in this add-on, I'll only give a few examples.


Bread has been tweaked to become a loaf and its recipe has been changed to make it more difficult to obtain.

First, you will need to make flour, using wheat in a Mortar and Pestle.

Making Flour

Next, you use water, flour and salt, and you get dough.

Dough Recipe

Finally, after obtaining three dough, you get bread!

Bread Recipe

Alternatively, you can also create a baguette by placing the dough vertically.

Baguette Recipe

Then, you can cut the Bread on the Chopping Board to obtain Bread Slices.

Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips is made with fries and cooked cod.

To get fries, you need 2 potatoes and salt, and you fry them in the frying pan.

Frying Potatoes

And with the fries, cooked cod and a plate together, voila! You get Fish and Chips!
